    Even though I was not around Mr. Vovko a lot, I knew he was always a good guy with a sneaky sense of humor. He was a caring man who was very smart and loved his son Skip (Stan) very much. His sense of humor was passed on to his son Stan, who can find humor in just about anything.
    He will be missed by me and many others.
    Take care Mr. Vovko, and I know he would want me to say…

    Skip–My thoughts are with you. There are no good words for this, but I am recalling many good memories, like your Dad being pulled down the street by Molly, then Maggie!!! And many, many fun times playing as kids….these things make me smile! I’m sorry for your loss, and praying for comfort for you!

    I will always remember your dad when visiting you and your
    parents home, family picnic’s & holidays. As I look back
    your father always seemed to care and always asked me about my mother and my family, always a caring uncle to me.
    I always loved your mother too, I thought she was sweet and kind,
    my mother always spoke with love about her sister Clara.
    I hope their all in a better place together again having fun and watching over us all again, as parents always do.

    May you find peace and love in the fact that your Dad is in a very special place reserved for all those who love God and His son Jesus. I am here for you and pray for you daily.

    Love you,

    My Uncle Stan was a very kind man.When I found out he died I was
    so un-happy.He lived until he was 83 years old.I was in tears when I heard Uncle Stan died.Again,he was a kind man for his age.At the funeral we all had to put a carnation flower on the grave.
    He was in the U.S Navy.A couple of other Navy friends came along.

    Dear Stan,

    I am sorry this is late coming but I wanted to touch base with you to offer my love and prayers to you and your family. I didn’t know your Father and even though I just recently met you, I feel a strong connection to you. It is always very hard to lose a parent that we love so much. I know that he is in a good place with God and the angels and he is never more than a thought away from you. Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss and I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

  14. Marissa Peoples on May 26th, 2009 7:27 pm

    Uncle Stan,
    May God pray for your good deeds,prayers,sins and love.God praises you in any ways.My Papa Mike died when I was five years old and he was very kind.I would never ever stop praying for you and all the other relatives who have died.My Aunt Linda said”she felt bad when you couldn’t keep your head straight up.”I felt bad when I heard you died and I was flabbergasted and nobody could have had a better uncle then you and I love you and I will pray for you forever.
    Marissa F. Peoples
